    Hello Debapratim,

    What an amazing bird and colors.
    I unfortunately do not know this bird - where was the photo taken?

    Regards,
    Rob

    A very appealing image and really colourful. I like the pose and plumage detail. The foliage is not ideal but I do not find it too distracting, I think I would leave it as is.

    Good head angle and amazing bird and details. I like the o-o-f leaves but would lose the sharper ones on our right ... Then I would take about half off the empty space at the top. The sky looks a bit CYAN but I am in my car :) Not driving :)

    with love, artie

    Very nice Bird and the Plumage.

    I would sharpen the eye a touch, it looks a bit soft to me.

    I agree with artie, I will remove the sharp leaves.

    My two cents as a square crop. LMK if you are interested in what I did.
